In this study, an artificial neural network (ANN) model using hybrid neural network is proposed for the design of aperture-coupled microstrip antennas (ACMSAs). The new hybrid model is developed by combining radial basis function (RBF) and back-propagation algorithm (BPA). The performances evaluation of the hybrid model reveals superiority over the conventional BPA and RBF models in terms of error and time. The results obtained by the proposed model are compared with the simulation results obtained from the IE3D software package and also with the experimental results obtained from the fabricated ACMSA. The results show good agreement.
